Have you tested the ChatGPT language model yet?
A chatbot that can respond to almost anything has taken off the Internet since its launch in November.
The massive popularity made tech giant Microsoft see an opportunity for greater search engine dominance.
They are now working on integrating ChatGPT into their search engine, Bing, according to the information.
March may arrive
The technology site writes that the new version of Bing may arrive as early as March.
Microsoft believes that an AI chatbot will give users a better search experience and better answers to their questions than our well-known list of links.
Several unnamed sources at Microsoft told The Information.
ChatGPT can write lyrics and records, provide recipes, and discuss mental health – just to name a few.
Here back home in Norway, it is being debated whether it should Completely destroy the exam form.
Technology expert Hans-Petter Nygård-Hansen believes that many people will try Bing because of this.
– This will help create more human-like responses to searches. The desire to test this is there. People are simply curious. But changing a routine is an entirely different matter.
Google will fight
By integrating a chatbot into Bing, Microsoft still hopes to take the fight to Google, the undisputed king of search engines.
According to 4.7 billion people who use Google smrash. This accounts for more than 90 percent of everyone on the internet.
In Norway, Google has approximately 96 percent of the market share. According to Statcounter, the next one on the list, Bing from Microsoft, can only boast 2.3 percent.
Nygaard Hansen therefore welcomes this news.
– All measures that can create a better balance in the competition are good, he says.
Microsoft has invested $1 billion in OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT in 2019.
NTNU researcher and artificial intelligence expert Inga Strümke believes that Microsoft is now trying to take advantage of the fact that chatbots have become so popular.
– They said ChatGPT would cost money, period. I envision Bing becoming the only free way to access the chatbot, as you say.
Strümke is sure that many will choose to use this bot, and therefore Bing, instead of the classic “Googling” in the future.
Nygård-Hansen believes more is needed to measure forces with Google.
– Google will not feel threatened in any way, I think. At the same time, I’d be surprised if they didn’t pay close attention. They’ve already developed their own solutions, says Hans-Petter Nygård-Hansen.
Supported by Inga Stromky.
– Google also has great language models. They are certainly among the major players in artificial intelligence in the world. But they haven’t tried anything similar. She says, I think there is another reason.
It could either be due to the fact that they weren’t afraid of competition from programs like Bing.
– Or they tried, but realized that it was too risky.
Nygård-Hansen explains that a number of ethical challenges arise if too much artificial intelligence is used in the general search engine.
It confirms how we can know that the information that the chatbot gives us is correct, and where the information originates from. We currently don’t know when to use ChatGPT.
Nygård-Hansen adds that OpenAI has already narrowed down what ChatGPT can answer for fear of abuse.
– This creates an ethical and moral dilemma. What is politically correct in one place may not be politically correct in another, for example, he says.
Inga Strümke emphasizes that Microsoft has not yet said anything about how to avoid these traps.
– Their bot could be a racist dirty piece, or just chatter about the wrong things. But they’re not stupid at Microsoft, so they must have thought of something clever, you say.
